    Abstrakt

    In order to stay competitive manufacturing companies continuously need to
    search for and implement best practices to improve their performance.
    Although the literature might suggest so, best practices are not a static set of
    improvement actions. On the contrary, as a majority of companies have
    implemented former best practices, one can expect that these lose their status
    and are replaced by new best practices.
    Analyzing data from 677 companies, this paper aims to shed light on the
    development and dynamics of best practices in manufacturing. Our findings
    suggest that integration of NPD and manufacturing, and improving
    manufacturing process maintain their status as best practices, while
    servitization and supply chain management are new best practices.
    Globalization and responsibility are proposed as promising practices, and
    technology is suggested as a qualifying practice.
